Levy ballots must be mailed soon

Residents in the West Valley, East Valley, Central Valley and Freeman school districts must have their ballots in the mail by Tuesday. All four districts have replacement maintenance and operations levies on the ballot. West Valley also has a technology levy and East Valley has a construction bond.

The levies fund a portion of each district’s annual budget and pay for items such as sports, technology and extracurricular activities that are not funded by the state. All the levies are replacing existing levies that are expiring. East Valley is seeking a construction bond, which can’t be used for day-to-day operations, to remodel and repair all of its elementary and middle schools.
